I used to live in Weatherford and the area west of there is some really beautiful country to ride in! Even the major highways out there are visually interesting. Some of the curviest roads are Hwy 4 from Palo Pinto south into Santo and Hwy 1148 on the backside of Possum Kingdom Lake. Maryís Cafe in Strawn and the Hungry Fox off of 1148, Possum Kingdom Lake, were favorite lunch spots. Thereís a variety of other interesting roads, some small, some large. The area is bounded by Hwy 380 on the north, Hwy 281 to the East, I-20 to the south.

On your way through to those areas, Lake Worth has a place called Navajo Burgers near i820 and 7028 Navajo Trail.


Order the Junkyard Burger "old school". The current version is a "loaded" cheeseburger. You have to ask for it the "old way" and it will be a meal for 2 with the double-patty cheese burger hiding in there somewhere.

I would love to, but COVID-19 is on the uptick, here in BCS!

Stupid students think they are invincible, and are making the rest of us sick! LOL

I am afraid to leave my driveway!

But yeah, one day, we are going to have to meet up in Kerrville, and go ride the Twisted Sisters!

I'm the same way, being extremely careful. My wife teaches at TWU, trust me I know. However, you can social distance outside and still get together as long as you respect each other. I'm staying away from overnighters for now, I'll say that, but day rides with like-minded people is one of the best activities we can participate in to keep sane. It's easy to get gripped with fear if you let it, but you can still enjoy some things safely and motorcycling is one of the best out there. We're lucky that we live in an area that you can pretty much ride year-round; it would bite not to have that and put your bike away for the winter and not have that outlet with this still going on. At least that's MHO.

Just as an example; I put together a team from my work and a ride for this Sunday to sponsor the DFW Ride for Kids campaign; we have 11 riders and they know the rules to social distance. There are several people in the high risk category and everyone knows the rules; those that can't abide are not going. Everyone is bringing a mask and agreed to use it when needed, we don't need this to become a tragedy when we're doing something awesome to raise funds for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. I've been involved with them since 2009 and am normally one of the photographers for the DFW Ride for Kids campaign. This year the event at Texas Motor Speedway was cancelled due to COVID of course, but we had to find ways to raise funds, so I came up with a ride of my own. Doing it this Sunday, starting at Maxim Honda Yamaha going to Blue Ridge.
